Message from the Principal
Welcome Mr Dougherty
Yesterday our school community was informed by Pam Betts, Executive Director of Brisbane Catholic Education, that our new principal is Mr Liam Dougherty. Liam is currently the principal of St Joseph’s Primary School, at Gayndah. Liam, his wife Michelle, and his boys Conor and Ciaran, are looking forward to making the move to Star of the Sea and Hervey Bay and I know our school community will make him and his family very welcome. This appointment follows a selection process involving national advertising and an interview process involving Fr Joseph, a parent representative and staff of Brisbane Catholic Education. I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Liam on behalf of the staff, students and parents of our school. Liam will be starting as principal at our school next semester.
State of Origin
The first State of Origin game is on Wednesday night, June 5th. Traditionally, Star of the Sea and Xavier Catholic College hold a State of Origin fundraiser to support the youth of our parish. This year it is our turn to host this event and preparations are underway for a great night. I would like to extend a welcome to all parents to come along on this night for a night of footy, food and fun. Please keep this date free and gather a group together to support this worthy cause. (see the attached flyer in our newsletter).
AFL Gala Day
This Friday representatives from our school will be attending the AFL Gala Day in Hervey Bay. Our students look forward to these days and we wish them all the best. Good luck girls!
Have a wonderful week,
Steph (Acting Principal)
There have been some issues with the Parish website lately and Fr Joseph has asked if there are any parents or friends who have expertise in setting up a basic website to please contact the Parish office if they can assist. Ph 4124 3334.
